Review:

Actually, a shade of orange-red rather than green, the name is a reference to the absinthe in this unusual combination of ingredients. The absinthe-rinse is a subtle addition to the Rosy Deacon but propels this classic into a more interesting place.

Variant:

Rosy Deacon

History:

Created in 2009 by Jim Meehan at PDT in New York City, USA, this is a riff on the Rosy Deacon in Stanley M. Jones' 1977 Jones' Complete Barguide.
